    I worked at NTUC Fairprice full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good learning ground for job seekers with entry level skills, where they provide much needed trainings and guidance.

    Cons

    has poor career progression - my colleagues who worked very hard for 5 years but was not promoted at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spot talents and groom them faster. Do not wait until when an employee is leaving for the management to take action in trying to promote and keep the employee, lest every employee does that...

    Most colleagues were friendly though some were nasty and the culture was not suitable for those who have high ambitions.

    I have been working at NTUC Fairprice as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Able to learn many things and gain a lot of experiences in working life.

    Cons

    Office politics, low pay, slow pace working life, differential treatment between temp staffs and full time staffs. Low chances of career advancement. Do within the box and inflexible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more time and money in human relations to develop a better working culture.

    I worked at NTUC Fairprice (more than an year)

    Pros

    Get to know first hand what type of new products are available in a megamart. Not much office politics and gossiping.

    Cons

    Job is monotonous and routine. There is not much of job satisfaction. Besides, there is not much of job advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create some interesting posts in the job ladder. Create a pre school centre, gym, and bar for employees to relax and chill.

    I worked at NTUC Fairprice

    Pros

    You get to meet interesting (albeit frustrated) people who like to preserve status quo. Also, they tend to put the staff in fairly good hotels for overseas trips. No expenses are spared if you are on overseas business.

    Cons

    Change is not something that is encouraged. They will do alot of research to prove this and cling onto the old ways of doing things. Also, expansion and growing a third wing is just a corporate presentation catch phrase with little or no committment. Also, quite a fair bit of internal strife and tension between the various departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up and look at your market share. You've lost your leading retailer and top supermarket chain status. Cash out now and sell to the competitor.
